Zimmer Will Be Back in '11

The Rays announced today that senior advisor Don Zimmer will be back to fill that role for the team in 2011.

Zimmer, who has spent 52 years in the Major Leagues as a player, coach and manager, announced Thursday that he’ll return for an eighth season as a senior baseball advisor for the Rays. Zimmer, a former All-Star and Manager of the Year, will be in uniform in Spring Training and for pregame practice for all 81 of his team’s home games at Tropicana Field next season.

A resident of nearby Treasure Island, he came to the Rays in 2004 after serving as bench coach under Joe Torre with the New York Yankees.
